About the property

Kingfisher Cottage, formerly one of the Bay of Fires Character Cottages, has the absolute best location at the Bay of Fires. You only have to walk a few steps to be sitting on Binalong Bay Beach, or even less will have you sitting on the deck at the local restaurant. This cottage has been a favourite holiday destination for many years. Recently the new owner has purchased all new bedding, kitchen accessories, large flat screen TV & DVD, dining table, couches and really comfy deck furniture, to help their guests enjoy the wonderful experience that is the Bay of Fires. They even supply gourmet coffee! FREE FAST WIFI is available. There is a new full length, ENLARGED DECK. We also have new flooring fitted.

The cottage has been repainted throughout, giving it a beautiful relaxed beach ambience, which is bright and airy. You will just love your stay here, and won't want to go home.

Kingfisher Cottage sleeps 6 guests, in 2 bedrooms, both with views of Binalong Beach and along the Bay of Fires. There is a large open plan living/dining/kitchen, with ocean and beach views from all areas. One bathroom services the cottage, with a brand new vanity.

If you want to really experience the Bay of Fires - up close and personal - then this is the cottage for you.

Perfect Short Family Vacay

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect for my family. My partner and our two kids (aged 10 and 12) had a wonderful time in this immaculately clean and perfectly appointed accommodation. Sensational views, ideal location to many beaches, bush walks and lovely restaurant. We love this part of Tasmania and I felt truly at home. Looking forward to coming back.

Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent views, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. The extras such as beach towels and throw rugs much appreciated. We braved a swim over the road and it was beautiful - warmer than expected! Had a lovely lunch at next door restaurant but it is not open all days so check and bring your own food supplies if needed as nowhere else to eat out. Some mosquitos around but thankfully flywires on windows and doors. Drive to nearby Gardens and there are numerous stops at stunning beaches of white sand and azure waters. It is not cheap but a lot cheaper than fancy lodge nearby and hard to imagine commensurately greater views or comfort than Kingfisher Cottage.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

Jam was brilliant in communicating with us- she let us know the property was ready early via email and text.

The property was amazing- with milk and all sorts of food items.

The rooms were both brilliant, the view stunning, the restaurant two doors down perfect.

Everything was just right. Our only regret is that we were so limited in time! Thank you, fingers crossed we will be back!

Owner's Response: Such a shame that guests often can't stay long enough to really enjoy the experience of the Bay of Fires - and especially the great location of Kingfisher Cottage. Always great to hear that I can make people happy though :)

Dazzling view

  • 5 of 5

I can’t do more than confirm all the other 5 star reviews. Perfect location, beautifully appointed , fabulous Binalong Bay. For us it was unaccustomed luxury but very worthwhile.

My dream beach house

  • 5 of 5

Jan has thought of everything to make your stay a wonderful one. Great beachy decor, rugs on outdoor setting balcony if you feel cool enjoying morning cup of tea.

Beautiful view & you can listen to ocean whist drifting off to sleep. Lichen restaurant is practically next door & great place to dine . Breakfast you would need to bring own supplies . Highly recommend & would like to have stayed longer.
